Electronic cookbooks are one of the gifts provided by modern technology. Most people still live an “old-fashioned” kind of life messing with volumes of cookbooks in their kitchens and creating a big mess. These cookbooks can take up a lot of space in your kitchen, leaving little room for the main item, the food! An electronic cookbook can virtually eliminate the need for these “real” cookbooks and will free up space on your shelves and kitchen counters.
The electronic cookbook actually has many similarities with an electronic book reader (ie Amazon’s Kindle product). The main purpose of the electronic cookbook is for you to have instant access to your favorite recipes while cooking in the kitchen. In today’s culture, convenience is king, and we don’t want to waste time going through cookbooks and recipe boxes trying to find a certain recipe. We want immediate access at our fingertips, and an electronic cookbook does just that.
Most digital cookbooks have an easy-to-read screen (usually around 7-9 inches). They are usually equipped with a memory that has a storage capacity of more than 2,000 recipes, and usually has at least 250 preloaded recipes. They also have useful features like a kitchen timer. You can usually set the timer to a preset time period (ie 5 min, 15 min, 30 min, etc) or give it a more specific time. No more searching through drawers trying to find that damn timer. It’s right there in your electronic cookbook.
Another cool feature found in many e-cookbooks is the “alternate ingredient” option. The recipe book gives you a series of alternative ingredients and you can choose the one that best suits your palate and taste. Or, more commonly, you may be missing one of the ingredients and need to know which ingredient would work best as a replacement.
Another problem that many cooks face when preparing a meal is that when they try new dishes, especially those that are a delicacy from other countries, they can have problems with the conversions of the quantities of the ingredients. No problem! The eCookbook solves this problem too, giving you all the necessary conversions in a flash.
One of the most important benefits of having an electronic cookbook is peace of mind. Just think about this question: how many great recipes have you missed throughout your life? If you’re like the average person, you’ve lost more than you care to admit. Sure, there are people who are incredibly organized and never lose anything. But most people just don’t have that kind of discipline. And the result is that many recipes you love are misplaced or accidentally thrown away, never to be made again. Since most e-cookbooks allow for a backup of all your recipes online, you’ll never have to worry about losing a recipe again.
For those people who love cooking, an electronic cookbook is the ideal resource. All your prescriptions will be conveniently and securely stored and ready to access whenever you want. It is almost certain to secure a permanent spot next to your oven.
